    I picked this up in Wal-mart the other day. I didn't notice at the time, but when I got home the packaging looked odd. Has anyone else found these with the incorrect card? I've linked an image of Prowl in the package mounted on a Sunstreaker card.

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe that is the trilingual package you would find that in Canada, Mexico, etc. And I believe with those releases you get a generic card back. Every deluxe figure in the line would have the Sunstreaker background. From what Hasbro Canada said at TFcon they are going to be changing this down the road so their packaging looks like it's US counterparts except that their packaging will be trilingual.

    The lazy-assed Canadian packaging... all of wave 1 (Prowl, Octane, Streaker) have the card with Streaker's pic on it here in Canada...

    It's not really lazy, it was just what they had to do for that market. The toys inside are pure awesome (smiles at his Tankor).

    Hasbro Canada stated that the generic card backs will stop later on. I think they mentioned or hinted at a fix for wave 2.
